My sisters and I were infamous for our (terrible) Mother’s Day breakfast in bed.
Burnt toast and orange juice.
Sorry mom! What she really dreamed of was a trip to Hawaii.
Since you will probably not be sending your mom to Hawaii for Mother’s Day, surprise her with a Hawaiian breakfast treat. (preferably in bed)
Pear Hawaiian French Toast
3 Tbs butter or margarine
2 Tbs packed brown sugar
1/2 C pineapple juice
1/8 tsp ground ginger
16 oz Fresh Sliced Pears
Chopped macadamia nuts (optional)
1/2 C milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
6 thick slices egg or French bread
